featuring work from Karen Vanmol & Courtney Kemp
Opening Reception Saturday, August 9 from 6 to 9pm
Home, includes work by artists Karen Vanmol & Courtney Kemp. Both artists use materials from the home as a starting place from which to make jewelry.
Vanmol finds inspiration in the every evolving and changing architecture and nature around us. Visually she hunts for images and composition and physically she collects materials from her surroundings. Many of the materials she chooses reference a personal history but are left open enough for the projected memories of the viewer.
Kemps aims to make the contemporary and precious from the materials and objects that surround us in our homes. Sourcing both architectural details and home utility objects, she aims to expose the moments through which we understand an interior domestic space. Kemps provides subtle glints of material recognition which allow the viewer to connect to a memory of place or or time. The mundane everyday objects integrates itself onto our bodies as fresh, new, and wearable.
